SIM on Linux questions: AD authentication and SLES update

Hello,

 

Currently we're running SIM 7.2 on SLES10SP4. I have two questions:

- Is it possible to enable AD authentication on SIM? The server is already member of the domain, I can login with my domain account on OS level, Kerberos is enabled and works, but still I can't seem to add Windows accounts to SIM.

- How can I update from SLES10SP4 to SLES11? I tried the normal SLES update path (upgrade to SLES11 with the SLES DVD) but after the upgrade, postgres refused to start with a .so error. I tried a vanilla SLES11 install with SIM7.2 and there everything works as expected, so somewhere is a difference, but I haven't been able to find this difference.

Re: SIM on Linux questions: AD authentication and SLES update

FWIW, I found the problem for the errors after upgrading SLES: the SIM installer had directly edited /etc/ld.so.conf and /etc/profile instead of placing the extra configuration files in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ and /etc/profile.d, and the upgrade changed those files.

 

So the solution was:

- Create /etc/ld.so.conf.d/hpsmdb.conf with the following content:

/opt/hpsmdb/lib
/opt/hpsmdb/lib/pgsql

 and then run 'ldconfig'

- Create /etc/profile.d/sim.sh with the following content:

# SIM path settings
if ! echo $PATH | /bin/grep -q "/opt/mx/bin" ; then PATH="$PATH":/opt/mx/bin; fi
